Congress GOP WTF?!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Pays $100,000 To Purchase Used Chapstick That Belonged To Kevin McCarthy

For some reason known only to her, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has just paid $100,000 to obtain a chchapstick that once belonged to Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

According to Olivia Beavers of Politico, House Republicans had a fundraising auction on Tuesday morning and one of the items up for bid was the McCarthy chapstick.

“NEW: During GOP conference today, House Rs did about a 15-min fundraising auction for chapstick used by Speaker McCarthy. The winner: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), whose winning bid was $100,000, her Spox confirms to me.”

“Others bid on it as well, but MTG ultimately won: And as bidding went on, McCarthy would sweeten the deal, throwing in agreeing to attend a dinner with donors/supporters for whoever wins.”

Keep in mind that Republicans in Congress are currently holding the entire country hostage with their absurd demands for massive cuts to the federal budget before they agree to raise the debt ceiling, but they still had time for a frivolous fundraiser.

Also, where in the hell did Greene get 100K to buy a damn chapstick? Is she using her taxpayer-funded salary to make that bid, or did she get the cash from a donor?

Twitter users had some thoughts on the matter, too.
